    Default Blacked-out area in Coral Sea

    Most areas blurred or blacked-out in GE are for security reasons. But here's a stumper: I discovered a blacked-out area in the Coral Sea between the Chesterman Islands atoll group and New Caledonia. Coordinates are approximately

    19░ 6'3.32"S, 159░56'34.81"E

    What's even more curious is the citation I found on that says the place "doesn't exist" :

    An Australian yacht racer I dredged up told me that the Chesterfield area is in dispute between France and Australia, but I have no other information. The nautical chart is hard to come by ($$$). Anyone have any ideas as to what's being hidden here?
